Mushroom Cap Pizzas

I love bite sized food! Something about getting to eat a lot of little things makes me enjoy the food that much more. This recipe was inspired by a bag of turkey pepperoni sitting in my deli drawer. I was staring at it wondering what I could do with it.

I saw somebody using a melon baller to scoop out the stems, but I found it a bit easier to just pull them out. You can try either way and see what works best for you.

I opted to not put pizza sauce in my mushrooms, but if you love pizza sauce then just dab a little in your mushrooms. You could even try a little alfredo sauce if you wanted!

Pile the cheese into the little cups, filling them to the brim! Then top off with the pepperoni slices.

I saved some of the cheese to sprinkle on top. The cheese crisps very nicely on top and makes the little pizza cups  look nice.

These would also make a great appetizer for a party or to take to a potluck.
